Pancreatitis and death

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis and death


Avatar n tn I had to put my 11 year old Llhasa apso to sleep yesterday because he was diagnosed with pancreatitis and was in so much pain that they could not guarantee that he would survive even with treatment. It came on suddenly...he was fine Saturday but began throwing up in the middle of the night and continued...he couldn't even hold down water and was very weak. I took him into the veterinary hospital on Sunday and he was too weak to come home.
Avatar m tn Well I/we know she has a drinking problem, she has started drinking again. She said she researched and drinking Red Wine does not hurt her Pancreatitis. In my feeble attempts of research I have not found anything that supports her thought process. What scares me is she was in a Coma for about 5 weeks and came real close to death for the first week or so, the doctors didn't think she was going to live.
Avatar n tn I'm not here to scare you, but you asked also for any who've had attacks following ERCPs and how long. I've had numerous ERCPs and have had attacks following each one. They know now, to draw the blood while I'm in recovery before they wake me to check it to see what it's doing. And each time, I've been admitted to the hospital for around 4 days. So, there's a good chance that you won't have an attack afterward, but there's a small chance you will.
Avatar n tn A lot. Saturday morning I called the vet and they wanted to see her right away for fear of pancreatitis. They drew some blood, gave her some IV antibiotics, and some fluids, though she was not dehydrated. They also gave me some prescription pills to give her at home along with some prescription dog food that we are to feed her a teaspoonfull at a time, a couple times per day.
Avatar m tn The use of the antipsychotic medication Seroquel has been linked to an increased risk of diabetes, pancreatitis and death. Thousands of Seroquel lawsuits have been filed throughout the United States by individuals who suffered severe and life threatening injuries.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis last January and was hospitalized five times since then with smouldering pancreatitis. I am on Ultram 20 and four omeprazole 20mg daily. I have lost forty pounds this year,probably due to no alcohol and change of diet.
611067 tn?1458595083 I also need to get into a gastroenterologist so they can do some tests. I'm scared to death. I have had pancreatitis before and it was horrible. This felt very similar and I told my doctor I think I've had these attacks before too. Fun, eh? The pain is so bad and the ibuprofen is something I shouldn't be taking due to my gastric bypass and so she is calling me in Darvocet. She said I'd be okay on that for a short time and that it shouldn't hurt me as far as being off the Lortab now.
Avatar n tn He is an alcoholic and has been for a very long time. He is suicidal right now and very depressed Can't shut his mind off, says it is going in 15 different directions, talks a lot Thinks he might be losing his mind Can't sleep Throwing up, gagging a lot Tried to drive out to work today and got to weak and almost passed out.
Avatar m tn She had one day of lethargy, not eating, and staggering when she walked. We took her to the vet the next day and she died. Her urine was filled with blood. I had fed her some fatty foods two days before. Could I have contributed to her death through pancreatitis? What did I do wrong?
Avatar f tn I love my husband more than life itself, I can't imagine a world without him, and unfortunately he has Chronic Pancreatitis. His CP causes awful, painful nights and even days, so I stand by his side and aid him. He doesn't usually say when he's not feeling good, because truly I think it's all the time, but he has better days then some. I love being intimate with him, sometimes I miss it and sometimes I know I need to tend to his needs more than worry about sex.
Avatar n tn I have Chronic Pancreatitis that stemmed from Acute Pancreatitis, I have struggled with relapsing off coc and alcohol, cigarettes. I have had periods of good clean time and then went back. Each time I went back to any of these especially the drinking and smoking, my CP has gotten much worse. Now I weigh 108 lbs and I am going to suffer most likely for the rest of my life. Please advise him to go to AA, as I need to go and stay there myself.
Avatar n tn After suffering through my first acute pancreatitis episode a few months ago and the discovery of multiple pseudocysts in my pancreas, with later diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis also, I do have some suggestions. A very strict low-fat diet and complete abstinance of any alcohol are most important. Gallbladder problems and alcohol cause 60-75% of the cases of people diagnosed with pancreatitis.
Avatar m tn Our 15 year old Yorkie died in my arms Thanksgiving day she had pancreatitis and a heart murmur was on Vet m Din and Enalipril her food was changed by local vet to Royal Canin low fat witch made her drink a lot of water witch she never did before with old food this food also has sodium could of this change of food brought on a massive heart attack?
Avatar f tn I have been suffering for days and cant get over my pain and suffrering. Can someone please tell me did the pork and the bone kill my baby, did he know he was dying and did he know how much we loved him before he passed on. Do dogs know they are loved? Do they they know they are dying and think of the people that cared for them and know we loved them???? I dont know how to put closure to my ordeal, All I know is that all I do is cry & suffer everyday and miss my baby every day.
Avatar f tn I'm sorry for your lost and am feeling the same way because I just lost a dog two days ago because she choked on her own vomit while in the ICU after she had an abcess drained from her abdomen. And she was also suffering from pancreatitis and was lethargic. A few hours later, I was told they were doing CPR because she had turned blue and had choked on her vomit.
Avatar n tn I am a 15 year old male and have anxiety. One of my biggest fears is that of death. I have like the biggest fear of death, that in history if we discuss something like it happened 500 years ao, i start thinking wow all those people are now dead and like maybe one of them died young or something, like maybe i could die young.
Avatar f tn My daughter's little dog, younger than yours, has chronic pancreatitis problems and has been at the Vet's at least 3 times with flare ups and whopping Vet bills. She too was put on IV's, fasted and sub-Q fluids at home. She was pretty sick for about a week. She has been strictly on Science Diet ID food, not much of anything else, and she has not had any more flare ups. Due to the age of your dog, it may take a longer time to recover or something else may be going on.
Avatar f tn I am really sick with pancreatitis and in no way can stop taking narcotics because they allow me to eat. I am 108 lbs. at 5'9" and relapsed about 2 months ago off of coc and alcohol. They wont allow me into treatment because of the meds I take, I just cant focus on stopping something that is allowing me to eat, so I know I need to get back into meetings which is where I had 8 months before I relapsed anyways.
793908 tn?1294708709 We moved her from the Lysodren because she did not respond well and would be good one day and really bad the next. My only advise that I can offer is to have your vet do an altasound of the glands before starting on Lysodren. We did not do this (Lysodren kills the glands if given too much of the drug, were as Trilostane is an inhibitor) and when we did she had already been on the drug for some time.
Avatar f tn But many of them appear fine and fit and well, until they suddenly get a bleeding internal tumour. This can give no warning. Blessings to your little dog's Soul. He surely is in a better place where there is no pain and will be waiting for you.
6246858 tn?1382272876 Thank you for your caring thoughts and comforting words. It helps to get it out and maybe someday I can help some one as well. Life and death is not always the way we hope to plan it. God had his plan, I just didn't know it. So many of us loose a loved one suddenly, with no illness evident, but hopefully they can get those answers to give them the closure that they need. I will never find out why Sugar died and I am frustrated that I never had a chance to cure her.
Avatar n tn coronary, pulmonary or spontaneous bleeding and clotting can occur at any time and hasten death Additionally, it is not uncommon for liver failure patients to wax and wane in terms of their mentation, confusion and overall state. Paradoxically, it's a laxative (lactulose) which can improve their mentation by converting and clearing amonium from the system - which is a function of a healthy liver So it's a roller coaster I'm afraid.
Avatar n tn I know this was long, but I wanted to give you as much information as possible. Thank you in advance for helping me. I have used this forum before and have been most happy and most appreciative to the fine docs that dedicate their time to helping others.

Again, thank you very much for your time. I have a long standing history of Pancreatitis that was caused from having an ERCP (You don't realize how large a 2% chance of getting Pancreatitis from an ERCP until you become one of the 2%!).

I have used this forum before and have been most happy and most appreciative to the fine docs that dedicate their time to helping others. _______ Dear Robin, Pancreatitis can burn out over the years. before considering having another ERCP, you should know why the doctor wants to do the test and how the information may alter how you are managed. If there is no gain to you, then refuse the test.
Avatar m tn based on final tests and xrays does it look like cause of death is liver lipidosis? based on final tests and xrays does it look like cause of death is liver lipidosis? What factors are present that are not typical of liver lipidosis that may have contributed to her death? What may have been her underlying condition? could mosquitos cause anemia and low platelet count? is anemia with malnutrition? what may have caused low platelet count and high calcium in first bloodwork?
Avatar f tn 1) Coronary Artery Disease, 2) Chorssis of the liver, and 3) Anemia. But that does not explain him coughing up blood and sudden death, I can't figure out why this would happen. Based on my research the cause of death, heart attack would not make a person cough up that amount of blood or at all, and Chrossis doesn't cause sudden death (that I know of).
Avatar f tn Dear Katrina, You will have to just type in the results manually. Only post the ones that are abnormal. Biopsy results and all medications will also help. Was a post-mortum performed? Thanks! I am here to help!
